What is RADIESSE®?
RADIESSE® is an injectable dermal filler that can plump loose skin, fill in wrinkles, and smooth fine lines on the face and hands. This treatment is highly sought after by patients because it is more comfortable, long-lasting, and effective than many of the other injectables available on the market.
How Does it Work?
While many dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, RADIESSE® is different. This injectable is made of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. During treatment, the water-based CaHA solution is injected into the site of facial wrinkles and folds, providing immediate correction to the area. Over time, these CaHA microspheres stimulate the body to produce more collagen. As these microspheres metabolize, they are converted into collagen, promoting sustained results that can last over a year.
What can RADIESSE® Treat?
RADIESSE® can be used to treat many of the most common types of facial wrinkles and folds. This includes:
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines
- Wrinkles in the corners of the mouth
- Pre-jowl fold
- Chin wrinkles
In addition to correcting facial wrinkles, RADIESSE® can also be used to return a youthful appearance to aging hands. When injected into the hands, RADIESSE® smooths and tightens the skin, making you look and feel years younger.
What Can I Expect from Treatment?
Each RADIESSE® injection session typically takes just 15 minutes, and involves virtually no downtime. While some people find these injections uncomfortable, RADIESSE® is FDA-approved to be mixed with a mild anesthetic that can significantly improve patient comfort.
While patients can usually get right back to their daily routines after receiving RADIESSE® injections, some experience a few mild side effects after treatment. These side effects can include irritation, itching, swelling, discoloration, and tenderness at the site of injection. Fortunately, these usually fade within a few days of treatment.
Once you’ve undergone a round of RADIESSE® injections, you won’t have to receive another for quite some time. This is because the results of this treatment can last over a year, giving you the beautiful, wrinkle-free skin you want without the constant follow up appointments that you don’t.
